Subject [jira] Commented: (CLI-126) CLI2 should support multiple property args on command line
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2006 15:37:23 GMT
    [ ] 
Sanjay Dahiya commented on CLI-126:

I am using trying to use cli2 in a case where we pass multiple property key-value pairs to
command line. 

For example:
bin/scriptToRun -conf<key>=<value> -env<key>=<value> 

conf properties are used in a different manner ( override system configuration ) whereas env
properties are passed on as env variables to other commands. mixing these would cause system
to break so after parsing the command line I need to identify which property was passed with
which trigger. 
Is there another way of doing this which I am missing ?

> If I specify a command line like -Dsomekey=value1 -Xsomekey=value2, after parsing the
value of somekey is overwritten as WritableCommandLine maintains a single set for all properties
irrespective of switch. 
> There should be a way of handling this case. CommandLine should probably return a set
of all the switches from which we get properties. 
> comments? I can submit a patch for this if its ok to make this change.
